Psalms 45 : 1 - 17

Chapter 45

1My heart is overflowing with a good theme; I recite my composition concerning the King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
2You are fairer than the sons of men; Grace is poured upon Your lips; Therefore God has blessed You forever.
3Gird Your sword upon Your thigh, O Mighty One, With Your glory and Your majesty.
4And in Your majesty ride prosperously because of truth, humility, and righteousness; And Your right hand shall teach You awesome things.
5Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the King's enemies; The peoples fall under You.
6Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
7You love righteousness and hate wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.
8All Your garments are scented with myrrh and aloes and cassia, Out of the ivory palaces, by which they have made You glad.
9Kings' daughters are among Your honorable women; At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
10Listen, O daughter, Consider and incline your ear; Forget your own people also, and your father's house;
11So the King will greatly desire your beauty; Because He is your Lord, worship Him.
12And the daughter of Tyre will come with a gift; The rich among the people will seek your favor.
13The royal daughter is all glorious within the palace; Her clothing is woven with gold.
14She shall be brought to the King in robes of many colors; The virgins, her companions who follow her, shall be brought to You.
15With gladness and rejoicing they shall be brought; They shall enter the King's palace.
16Instead of Your fathers shall be Your sons, Whom You shall make princes in all the earth.
17I will make Your name to be remembered in all generations; Therefore the people shall praise You forever and ever.
